Dear Jay, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I'm so sorry to hear of your discomfort.
Well, hemorrhoids cane be associated with Bright red blood on toilet tissue, stool, or in the toilet bowl. Usually it is associated with other symptoms like-
-Anal itching
-Anal ache or pain, especially while sitting
-Pain during bowel movements
-One or more hard painful lumps near the anus.
Hemorrhoids having mild symptoms are treated with over-the-counter creams, ointments, suppositories.
Heavy bleeding can be associated with large hemorrhoids. They can be also be internal and may not be felt while passing stool.
Bleeding during bowel movements is the most common sign of hemorrhoids.
Other possible reasons for blood mixed with stool are-
-Inflammatory bowel disease like ulcerative colitis or crohn's disease.
-Polyp
To make a diagnose you have to undergo these tests-
-Stool test,
-Par rectum examination,
-Complete blood count.
Also If required colonoscopy may be considered.
Please get it clinically evaluated from your doctor.
If the bleeding is quite severe then you should have an urgent evaluation in ER ASAP.
I would recommend that you visit your primary doctor for evaluation and get it managed.
Please let me know how I can be of further assistance.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.

ok well i am at a offsite remote work camp and i have three weeks to go .should i take off and hope on a plane too see the doc or can it wait another three weeks

Dear Jay, Thanks for asking follow up question.
I can understand your concern.
Well, if you have little bleed, then it can be ignored.
If this is occurring repeatedly while having bowel movements, then you should get it checked right away.
If you are bleeding heavily, many times, then please don't delay and get it checked ASAP.
